By the Gods!

Ivan Rassimov as Sandokan in LE TIGRI DI MOMPRACEM (1970)

The Sandokan series of films started with Steve Reeves playing the titular character. Several different actors played Sandokan, including Ray Danton and Kabir Bedi. For me, the question is : how does one go from Steve Reeves to Ivan? The two men couldn't be more different. That's Andrea Bosic on the left. Andrea was also in the two Reeves versions. This movie wasn't translated into English. Any English subs out there?

Hi just to inform you that this movie was dubbed into english as " The Tiger of Mompracem" I saw it in the late 70's or early 80's in South Africa.It does however have many scenes from previous Sandokhan films especially the two Steve Reeves films.

Ivan Rassimov had a heck of a career. He pops up all over the Italian cinemascape. My first memory of him is as the quasi-Darth Vader "Lord Graal", in the Star Wars rip-off (let's call it what it is) "The Humanoid."
